Self pity



Looking through my tainted window of gloom

grey skies, rain falling, feeling sorrow

impatiently wanting  life to resume,

will things change, get better tomorrow, 

sure that  grass was greener the other side,

not walking a mile in your well trod shoes 

now ashamed looking for somewhere to hide

didn't realise how easily I would bruise,

underestimate this feeling of loss

an unidentifiable man anymore 

floundering like a wounded albatross,

indecent intentions, now I deplore

apologises are unheard, your not here

didn't know how so much I loved you dear.

It's good to know this was not a personal loss. It so well describes the loss of color and will to live.

Thank you very much Darren for reading and your very kind comment, like I replied to Daniel if I lost of my wife I would wallow in self pity, thanks for your support, Roy.

Sad write, Roy. If it's personal. just think of it as her loss. You've probably culled better on the corner:)
